The holiday hangout will go online tomorrow! If there's anything in the regular subforums that you're going to want to access over the holidays, copy it now while it's still accessible.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
A friend of mine was just going through basic training. He is a candidate for special ops, and he may become a ranger.
Anyway, he just finished basic training, and he is going into active duty, withing a couple months, though he's not sure where. He told me that his superiors have been saying that we're on the cusp of WW3, all the way down through his training. I asked him if that is just something they say to make a soldier prepared for...whatever. He said he had no idea.
Can anyone say whether or not this is common, maybe just used as a way to psych up a soldier before going into duty? Is fucking (EDIT: more?) war about to break out? Possibly with China or N Korea?
